Mirroring Justification.

How to mirror text, so justification will be mirrored too? For ex: if text had a left justification, after mirroring it will have right justification. Thank you.

If you mirror Mtext the justification will mirror too, if you mirror Dtext the justification will remain the same as the original.

Dtext can be changed to Mtext with the txt2mtxt command (Express tools)

This is a good question. I'm interested in finding out myself now.

Thanks. I have to use plain text and mirroring with proper justification is not as simple as with mtext. Looks like nothing I can do with it.

This may help:

You can globally change the justification with the TJUST command (Express Tools)  and the position of the text will remain as is or you can globally change it through the properties palette and the text will move. (the justification point stays the same)
